OPP says transport trucks cause many fatal car accidents

The Ontario Provincial Police says a significant number of road accidents in the province involve commercial trucks. They say one in every five crashes involve large trucks, and with the considerable difference in size and weight, occupants of cars have very little chance of survival. Authorities say 330 people died between 2012 and 2016 in car accidents on the roads that OPP patrols -- most of whom were occupants of vehicles other than large trucks.

How does the adjudication work for CPP Disability claims?

Any Ontario residents who suffer an injury or illness that leaves them unable to return to work will likely have questions about their Canada Pension Plan Disability benefits. Before disability claims can be paid, the application must be approved. Understanding the requirements for eligibility might provide answers to some of the questions.

Car accidents: Drowsy driving is as dangerous as drunk driving

Although studies show that adults need at least seven hours of sleep every night, a significant number of people in Ontario and other provinces do not allow themselves the time to get enough sleep. When it comes to driving, the studies indicate that even missing one or two hours of the recommended hours doubles the risk of causing car accidents. In fact, researchers say drowsy driving can be compared to drunk driving.

Proving distractions caused car accidents could be challenging

Drivers in Ontario break the law if they use any hand-held entertainment or communication devices while driving. Car accidents can happen in the blink of an eye, and checking the screen of a cell phone could be a fatal mistake. Other driving distractions include drinking beverages, eating, operating a GPS, checking maps and choosing playlists. Any of these activities could distract a driver just enough to cause a crash.
